My 2 cents on the subject. I think it's just the culture. Wasn't it Bob Weir who basically pushed Vince Welnick off the tour bus when he OD'd? I think the bus was still running- pushed the guy out at the hospital drove off then threw him out of the band never to be heard from again. I don't remember the outcry for Weir being a jerk. I know it stinks when our hero's act like idiots and lack common sense but in both the Bobby case as well as Vince, I get the sense it's happened so many times in various situations that they became immune to it. Right or wrong.

I did not know zbout the BW, VW, bus thingy. A brief online tour confirms some folks are still very unhappy about that incident.

I think I'm going to turn in my visitors pass to the sausage factory. You can't bury your head in the sand about much without getting burned, but I just don't want to know about these things (and I don't have to). I like it much better when the space all of this inhabits in my brain is about music and such, otherwise it's just a drag.
